Geometrical dimensions of steel billet: technical requirements and allowed tolerances:


Section, mm: 120x120, 125x125, 130x130, 135x135, 150x150

Length, mm: 6000-12000

Tolerance for width, mm: ±3,0

Tolerance for length, mm: ±100

Straightness: max 5 mm per 1 m length, except for 150 mm of butt ends

Difference of diagonals for section, mm: no more than 8

Surface quality:


Continuous cast square billets are supplied as-cast without surface treatment. There should be no teeming arrest, pulling traces, visible cracks on the billet surface.


Steel billet ends quality:

Oxy-fuel gas cutting may result in oxidized metal lapping on butt ends which is acceptable. Shrink holes visible without magnifying equipment on the edges after cutting are not allowed.



One butt end of steel billet is marked with colour identification code and metal tag is attached. Heat number and steel grade are painted on the second butt end.  



Continuous cast steel billets in length 6-12 m are packed in bundles of 3- 4 peaces each with weight up to 7,0 tn. Weatherproof tags are attached to each bundle. Tags should contain information about customer, order number, steel grade, heat number, sizes, bundle number and weight, country of destination.
